Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.

There is only one security, and when you've lost that security, you've lost everything you've got. And that is the security of confidence in yourself; to be, to create, to make any position you want to make for yourself. And when you lose that confidence, you've lost the only security you can have. ... Self-confidence is self-determinism. One's belief in one's ability to determine his own course. As long as one has that, he's got the universe in his pocket.

I have received many queries from people who want to know how to have confidence in oneself. What makes a person confident? What makes him brave? Wouldn\'t it be nice if there were such a pill known as the \"confidence\" pill which works as well as the VIAGRA.
Many people in the world are \'lost\'. If you are one of them, do not dismay because more that 98% of people in the world are \'lost\'. And because they are \'lost\' they feel fearful and therefore lack of confidence. They don\'t know what they really want and they don\'t know where they are heading. Unlike a new TV or microwave oven, we are born without a proper instruction guide.
We are just like a leaf that is being blown by the wind \"uncertain\" of where it will land.
So where lies the answer? Let\'s look back at the \'leaf\'. If it is re-attached to the branch which is attached to the tree which has its roots deep in the ground, with its root hairs immersed in water and minerals - this leaf will be \"confident\" and \ ...more

Self-confidence is an attitude which allows individuals to have positive yet realistic views of themselves and their situations. Self-confident people trust their own abilities, have a general sense of control in their lives, and believe that, within reason, they will be able to do what they wish, plan, and expect. Having self-confidence does not mean that individuals will be able to do everything. Self-confident people have expectations that are realistic. Even when some of their expectations are not met, they continue to be positive and to accept themselves.

People who are not self-confident depend excessively on the approval of others in order to feel good about themselves. They tend to avoid taking risks because they fear failure. They generally do not expect to be successful. They often put themselves down and tend to discount or ignore compliments paid to them. By contrast, self-confident people are willing to risk the disapproval of others because they generally trust their o ...more
